The Class of 1967 dedicates this book to Maryland State 
College and to Dr. John Taylor Williams. By virtue of her 
past 80 years of history and experience and under the firm 
and devoted administration of the President for 20 years, the 
College has demonstrated unique qualifications in all edu- 
cational directions. Together, they have maintained the vision 
of the founders and the belief in a future world governed by 
reason and concord among men.

LONG HISTORY 1886-1948 

Residents of Somerset County who like progress can point 
with pride to Maryland State College, the local Eastern Shore 
Institution, which has grown from humble origins to a great 
enterprise for the education of youths of Maryland. The Col- 
lege is now a recognized landmark rendering many worth- 
while services to the citizens of the State. 

First Classes Held in Olney 

Founded in 1886, the College held its first classes in an old 
colonial dwelling called Olney. This building was situated 
near the outskirts of town on the old unpaved road to Salis- 
bury. Ezekiel Haynie, a physician of Snow Hill, built Olney in 
1798 when George Washington was still alive. Bearing no in- 
scription or plaque, Olney still stands in the center of the 
campus, now being used as a faculty residence. It is said to 
be the oldest building on any college campus for Negro 

Although the name of Ezekiel Haynie went out of exist- 
ence, the descendants of Haynie lived on under such family 
names as Done, Stewart, and Jones, A great-great-great 
granddaughter of Haynie, Mrs. Doris Maslin Cohn, now lives 
in Princess Anne, having published letters of her ancestor in 
the Maryland Historical Magazine. 

With many claimants, Olney remained in possession of the 
heirs of Haynie until a court decision in 1867 ordered the 
property to be sold under the trusteeship of Isaac D. Jones, 
then a lawyer of Princess Anne and Attorney General of the 
State. Jones sold the entire Haynie estate to his friend, James 
U. Dennis, one of the wealthiest men of the County. Eventu- 
ally, Olney passed through the hands of Louis W. Morris, 
Beulah Hirst, Aaron D. Woodruff, and John A.B. Wilson. 
Morris and Woodruff were local residents and Wilson was 
presiding elder in the Methodist Church. Persuaded by 
Joseph R. Waters, a native of Fairmount, Wilson sold the 
property to the school despite some local objections. John F. 
Goucher, after whom Goucher College was named, made the 
down payment. 

By the time Olney was deeded to the school, it was badly 
m need of repairs, having deterioated to the extent of being 
used as a granary. Trees, weeds, and tall grass were all 
around Olney when the school first opened. Inside the build- 
ing the walls were beginning to crumble. The elegance of 
Olney in Haynie's day had passed, never being entirely recap- 
tured or recreated. College officials now say that Olney will 
be torn down, but the building is still in use despite some 
destruction by a fire in 1919 and the telling effects of time 
and age. 

First Students and Teachers 

The first students enrolled in September of 1886 were put 
to work cleaning the grounds and making repairs on Olney. 
There were only nine studens to enroll, there were thirty- 
seven in attandance. Most of the first students came from the 
County, bearing such well known family names as Dennis, 
Gale, Maddox, Tilghman, and Waters. One of the first stu- 
dents, James I. Dennis, now resides on Antioch Street. 

The first teachers were Benjamin O. Bird, the principal, 
his wife Portia, and an assistant named Jacob C. Dunn. Bird 
and his wife were natives of Virginia, but Dunn came from 
Queen Anne's County. Bird was a faithful worker for school 
and community and for many years the school preserved his 
memory through the Bird Lyceum, a student organization that 
passed out of existence by the 1930 s. In 1940 one of his 
daughters. Crystal Bird Fauset, a former member of the Leg- 
islature of Pennsylvania, dedicated a new mechanic arts 
building in memory of her father. This building and two 
others were constructed from Federal funds. Bird died in 1897 
and was buried on the campus after services in the local 
Metropolitan Methodist Church. 

College Given Many Names 

The College has had several names in its history and the 
various names seem to have indicated the type of program 
and control in existence at the school. There have been such 
names as the Delaware Conference Academy, Industrial 
Branch of Morgan College, Princess Anne Academy, Eastern 
Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College, Princess Anne 
College, and since 1947, Maryland State College. Oldtimers 
slip up by referring to early names. Occasionally, the word 
Academy is still heard. This is ironic because the College 
today is as different from the old Academy in purpose and 
scope as night is from day. 

Methodist Control 

Most of the names were given when the school was under 
control of the Methodist Church. Methodists really took the 
lead in founding the school. They administered it until the 
State took over completely in 1936. Early Methodists set up 
the school as a Branch of the Centenary Biblical Institute of 
Baltimore with the idea in mind that the school would be a 
preparatory one. 

Receiving support from various Methodist Conferences 
during the early years, the school took the name of the Dela- 
ware Conference in which it was located. Although gradu- 
ation certificates were given yearly beginning in 1887, there 
was no four year high school graduating class until 1904. A 
member of this class, Mrs. Anna Handy Maddox, now lives in 

the County. Methodist discipHne and leadership were planted 
early in the history of the school and continued strongly in 
force until 1936 even though Methodist financial support 
ceased to be noteworthy after the turn of the century. 

Federal and State Support 

Most of the financial support after 1900 came from Federal 
land-grant funds under the Morrill Acts and the Nelson A- 
mendment. In order for the State of Maryland to continue to 
receive Federal funds under an act of 1812, it was necessary 
for the State to give its legislative assent to the Morrill Act 
of 1890. This act set up the principle that no land-grant funds 
for education were to be used in any state where a "distinc- 
tion of race or color is made." Land-grant funds went to the 
Maryland Agricultural College in College Park, a predecessor 
of the present University of Maryland. 

Receiving only six thousand dollars in appropriations from 
the State, officials in College Park did not wish to lose the 
badly needed Federal funds which made up a large part of 
the budget. Accordingly, the President of the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, Henry E. Alvord, was very interested in 
having Federal funds continue at his college until the Assem- 
bly could meet and take action on the Morrill Act of 1890. 
The Assembly was then meeting biannually on even number- 
ed years and would not hold its next session until 1892, two 
years after the Morrill Act of 1890 became effective. This 
would delay the receipt of funds at College Park. So Alvord 
got in touch with Goucher and the two men drew up a con- 

John A. B. Wilson 1848-1906 
Minister, Founder 

First Four Year Graduating Class - 1904 

tract on December 31, 1890 designating the Academy to re- 
ceive Federal funds in compliance with Morrill Act of 1890. 
The Academy was given the name of the Eastern Branch of 
the Maryland Agricultural College by this contract, and the 
institution in College Park was set up as the administrative 
agency. But in reality control continued to be exercised by 
the Trustees of Morgan College. 

One month after the contract was signed, Alvord reported 
to Governor Elihu Jackson of Salisbury that the land-grant 
issue was of "utmost importance," and that the Board of Trus- 
tees at College Park desired "to fully meet the spirit of the 
new law" by designating the Academy. Alvord's report con- 
tained the following statement: —To save time and econo- 
mize expenditure, advantage was taken of the existence of 
a school for colored persons in Princess Anne, in Somerset 
County, known as the Normal and Industrial Branch of Mor- 
gan College of Baltimore. A legal contract has been made 
with the representatives of that institution, by which the 
school in Princess Anne becomes the Eastern Branch of the 
Maryland Agricultural College and will so continue until the 
meeting of the next General Assembly of the State. —At the 
next Assembly, legislators gave legal assent to the Morrill 
Act of 1890 and indicated approval of the contract. 

Under the Nelson Amendment to the Morrill Acts, the 
school's share of Federal funds was increased to a sum of 
$10,000 by 1913. This sum, with student fees, made up practi- 
cally all of the income of the Academy. Yet, some persons in 
the State attempted to have this income distributed among 
other schools, including the teachers' college at Bowie. But 
the United States Bureau of Education insisted that the Acad- 
emy and the institution in College Park were to remain the 
sole recipients of Morrill funds. 

As aid from the State increased, there were demands that 
the State should exercise more control over the school. After 
much delay, the State agreed in 1936 to pay the Trustees of 
Morgan for their interests in the school. The State then be- 
came the sole owner, conducting the administration through 
the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland. 

From High School To College 

By 1936 the old Academy had been transformed from a 
high school to a college. This transformation had been 
brought about during the principalships of Frank J. Trigg and 
Thomas W. Kiah, 

A native of Virginia, Trigg served as principal of the Acad- 
emy from 1902 until 1910. Bringing with him the influence of 
Hampton Institute where Booker T. Washington was a class- 
mate, Trigg was successful in gaining for the Academy a high 
place of recognition among the better high schools of that 
time. This was no small accomplishment because high school 
training in those days was hardly available and rarely support- 
ed from public monies. Trigg and his staff did much to make 
the Academy a first rate high school, earning the praise of 
many educators as well as that of the editor of this newspaper. 

Jacob C. Dunn 1867 (?) -1915 
Of First Teaching Staff 

A native of the Shore, Kiah served as principal from 1910 
until his death in 1936. During his tenure, the role of the 
Academy as a high school was eclipsed by the development of 
public secondary education. Though inferior to the program 
of the Academy, the increase of free public education in the 
counties of Maryland led to a decline in the Academy's enroll- 
ment after World War I. During the school year 1919-20, the 
enrollment at the Academy stood at 180. Five years later it 
had dropped to 120. There was a further decline to 96 in 

A junior college program was instituted under Kiah in 
order to meet competition from public schools. Yet, this idea, 
which took form in 1925, failed to bring the desired results 
and it was later abandoned in order to make the old Academy 
a full flfidged four year college. There was the problems of 
funds, and the State was reluctant to make appropriations for 
expansion so that a genuine four year college program could 
be adopted. Furthermore, World War II intervened with its 
inroads into student enrollment. 

New Program After World War II 

A major program was instituted shortly after the end of 
World War II. This program was designed to revolutionize

life at the College. The development added a new outlook 
at the school. By almost any yardstick, the changes made 
since the War have led to the establishment of a first rate four 
year college program. 

The changes have been far reaching, touching every aspect 
of college life. For example, the construction of many build- 
ings has changed the shape and size of the campus. Old timers 
who come back to the college and see the many new buildings 
have been amazed and well pleased with the progress. Build- 
ings constructed during the past five years include two dormi- 
tories for men, a classroom building, a dining hall, a faculty 
apartment building, faculty cottages, a dairy and poultry 
plant, and a splendid agriculture building. An athletic field 
has been built; pavements have been laid; and several old 
structures have been razed or moved. The face of the campus 
has been lifted by landscaping, drainage, and changing the 
course of the old road to Salisbury which passes by the 

There have been many other changes since the War: 
A competent and well qualified staff was obtained to carry 
out the offerings in several specialized fields. The staff was 
greatly enlarged under the new program. The entire organi- 
zation of the College was streamlined, being divided into four 

major divisions of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Home Eco- 
nomics, and Mechanical Industries. A new curriculum was 
carefully devised for each Division and published in new 

The student enrollment was increased considerably, to 
three times the size for any give year since the school first 

Appropriations for maintenance nearly quadrupled those 
for pre-War years and an Air Force Reserve Officers Training 
Corps was added. 

Student life was revitalized by the introduction of sound 
academic and recreational programs. The College Library 
increased fifteen times its number of volumes, and athletic 
programs became nationally recognized. An impressive list 
of nationally known speakers has continually added much to 
the cultural life of the college and community. The College 
received its present name as a symbol of its new program. 

Present Administration 

The instrument for carrying out these far reaching changes 
has been the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland 
who employed the first president. Dr. John T. Williams. Dr. 
Williams is a native of Oklahoma and a former dean of Ken- 
tucky State College. Able as an administrator, he has provid- 

ed leadership with distinction in making a newer and better 
College in Princess Anne. 

As in past years, the College is intimately a part of the 
history of Somerset and the Shore. Its roots are deep. Its work 
has been a lasting contribution to the people of the County 
and the State. Its future is more promising than ever before. 
Its doors are always open to visitors and friends. Maryland 
State College has truly become "The People's College. " 


In 1948, the Eastern Branch of the University of Maryland, 
popularly known as Princess Anne College became officially 
Maryland State College, A Division Of The University Of 

The first head of the institution to bear the title of presi- 
dent had been employed in September 1947. When the new 
administration of the college was begun, the president of the 
college was instructed by both the executive officer of the 
Board of Regents and the chairman at that time that he must 
build a good college; the land-grant function must be carried 
out; and as well as possible the graduates of the school must 
be of such caliber that their educational status would be un- 

The printed catalog of 1947-48 stated the purpose of the 
College as follows: 

The principal purpose of the college is to offer training 

in theory and practice by which the student can make 

advancement in his field of study and develop his pow- 
ers to understand the world in which he lives, to choose 
wisely his life work, and to function agreeably and ef- 
fectively in the society which he must help to maintain. 
The realization of this purpose is sought through: 

1. Carefully planned four-year curricula in Agri- 
cultural Education. Home Economics and Home 
Economics Education, Mechanic Arts and Indus- 
trial Education, and two years of Arts and 

2. Wholesome extra-curricular activities for train- 
ing in good sportsmanship, health development, 
and the proper use of leisure. These activities 
include opportunities for development of the 
Christian philosophy. 

It is interesting to note the declaration which immediatly 
follows the statement of purpose, as recorded in this same 

For the first time, the Maryland Legislature has indi- 
cated its intention to provide adequate funds for the 
development of the Princess Anne College as an inte- 
gral part of the University of Maryland. The Legislature 
has almost quadrupled the annual appropriation of the 
College for maintenance, raising it from $33,183.00 to 
$113,633.00. This means a better paid and a larger fac- 
ulty, more efficient teaching for students, and the be-

ginning of research. 

It is the intention of the State, apparently, to provide 
at Princess Anne work of a comparable quality and 
standard to that at College Park. The development at 
Princess Anne will involve four-year work in the arts 
and sciences, in the field of mechanic arts, in home eco- 
nomics, and in agriculture. It is expected that agricul- 
tural research will be carried on at Princess Anne as 
well as at College Park. The future of that part of the 
University of Maryland located at Princess Anne seems 
now to be assured. 

The Challenge 

In September 1947, the president of the University and the 
chairman of the Board of Regents in a conference held in the 
office of the president of Princess Anne College (now Mary- 
land State College) carefully pointed out the job ahead as 
indicated by the statements appearing in the catalog of that 
year and made pertinent comments concerning them. Among 
the many comments offered were statements concerning the 
necessity for the students and employees of the college to 
give attention and regard to the mores and folkways of the 
people of the local geographic area. A discussion concerning 
the immediate present need for strengthening the offerings of

the college followed, and finally some attention was directed 
to the expected increased support of the institution. In brief, 
it was concluded by the officers of the board that from the 
time the State assumed control of the college program, in 
terms of excellence, the institution had won little recognition 
as a center of learning in higher education. It was the further 
observation of the regents that the derogatory statements 
coming forward relative to the neglect of the college had 
merit and that they had been assured that adequate financial 
support for the college would be immediately forthcoming. It 
was stressed that assurance of increased aid was possible 
because the people of the State were demanding that the 
program of Princess Anne be placed on a sound basis, and the 
Regents were ready to see that this was done. 

Thus, in September 1947, when the present administration 
of Maryland State College began, high regard was given by 
the new president to the challenge presented. However, it 
must be stressed that at that time the prestige of the college 
was so low that the "Higher Education in Maryland" survey 

6. The control of a negro college by a Board of Re- 
gents whose main interest is in a State University 
for white students is not likely to result in satisfac- 
tory facilities for negro students. 
Indeed, in addition to the publicity given to the recommen- 
dations included in this survey, several prominent newspa- 
pers at that time found it difficult to justify the continued 
existence of the institution. The fact is, during the period 
mentioned above, intense and vitriolic hostility on the part of 
many negroes and white people was directed against officials 
of the University of Maryland, other supporters of the college, 
and the president of the institution for advocating the con- 
tinuation of Maryland State College. 

This was the climate surrounding the college when on De- 
cember 17, 1947, the Legislative Council met on the Campus 
of Maryland State College in a day-long session to consider 
formally the necessity for continuing the existence of this 
particular state-supported institution. A general feeling of 
opposition was directed toward the decision of this body when 

Graduating Class, 1894 

recommended that, along with other colleges, the Princess 
Anne College should be abohshed. In brief, according to the 
survey, the principal reasons underlying this recommendation 

1- The college is unfortunately located . ... it is dif- 
ficult of access from other areas of the State ... 

2. The Institution has no recognition by either na- 
tional or regional accrediting agencies. 

3. The cost per student is excessively high, even 
though the quality of the program is low. 

4. It can never hope to attract a student body for 
efficient operation .... 

5. Princess Anne College is now a branch of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Under this arrangement, the 
development of the negro land-grant college has 
been shamefully neglected. 

it recommended that the college should continue its 

In the period under discussion the concepts and attitudes 
expressed by news media and from certain quarters in the 
State were so adverse that a newly-elected Governor of Mary- 
land in his inaugural address included a statement to the 
effect that there would be no increase in funds for the college 
until certain answers were forthcoming and a number of de- 
cisions had been made. 

This assertion rang so loudly throughout the State that 
for the first time since the beginning of the new administra- 
tion in 1947, negro citizens of the Eastern Shore Counties 
organized the Eastern Shore Citizens' Association, in an at- 
tempt to defend the college. One of the efforts of this associ- 
ation was to send 750 people to Annapolis to witness the 
attempts of their elected officers to explain to the Governor of 


the State their desire to have the program of the college con- 
tinued and improved. In addition to the efforts of the Eastern 
Shore Citizens' Association, the Maryland State College Na- 
tional Alumni Association was motivated to send several dif- 
ferent small groups and committees to seek the ear of the 
Governor and individual members of the University Board of 
Regents to urge them to lend their active support to the pro- 
gram of the College. While these attempts were not entirely 
futile, the Governor of the State did not see fit to recommend 
funds for capital outlay for the construction of buildings. In- 
deed, not one single capital outlay appropriation was granted 
the college over an eight-year period. 

The years mentioned constituted a critical period for the 
College. A new administration had just begun, and there was 
almost universal questioning of the accreditation of the col- 
lege, in comparison with the status of the College Park area 
of the University. In brief, justification for the continued ex- 
istence of the College was overtly discussed over an extended 
number of years. 

The State Legislature of 1957 made the first clear-cut ap- 
propriation of funds for the construction of buildings since 
1949. By this time, there could be no question concerning the 
accreditation of the institution, because in 1953 the Middle 
States Association, in a separate evaluation, had given its 
approval for full accreditation of Maryland State College. By 
way of comment, the Middle States Accrediting Association 
in its report of that year stated, in part: 

Finally to be noted is the extraordinary spirit of co- 

hesiveness and optimism which pervades the Princess 

Delcon Hall, Built In 1892; 
Destroyed By Fire, 1959 

Anne campus. From the President to the last freshman, 
these people are convinced that there is a job to do, 
confident that they can do it, grateful for the resources 
which have already been put at their disposal, hopeful 
that their very considerable needs will continue to be 
met by the University and the State, alert to changing 
needs and situations, and courageous in facing them . . . 
In evaluating the College, one recognizes an intrinsic 
merit. It is pioneering and experimenting intelligently. 
Once a student is admitted, he or she receives guidance 
and faculty interest to develop all inherent qualities. 
Emphasis is placed on the student as an individual, not 
on the student as a group type .... 

Following the year that the College received its statement 
of accreditation from the Middle States Association, there 
began a new era for the institution. As already mentioned, 
in 1957 there was the beginning of small state appropriations 
for capital outlay, and there has been an attempt since that 
time for state financial sources to provide greater cooperation. 
Today, it is apparent that the Board of Regents is vitally inter- 
ested in bringing the institution up to the level where it will 
be comparable with the University as a whole.

With an empowering desire to put to best use the insights, inspirations and associations gained in its 
eighty-year history, Maryland State College, today, is experiencing the most promising period 
it has known. With full confidence that the progress will continue and gain momentum, the College feels 
strongly that it is uniquely qualified to offer positive leadership in effective ways both locally 
and nationally. 

Launched on a forward looking five year program, the College has made an analysis of itself as a 
dynamic entity. A factual description of the physical plant and an analytical evaluation of the academic 
and social characteristics of the student body, faculty and administration have been made. 

Of the many facts brought into relief by this study, the most paramount is that Maryland State College 
is a good, functioning, well-staffed educational institution which has in the past, and will in the future, 
make a solid contribution to the society it serves.

Football is king at MSC and the Hawks performed royally in compiling victories over A & T (26-14), 
Lock Haven (44-12), Delaware State (52-6), Southern Connecticut (18-13), and Virginia Union (28-3). 
Narrow losses to Morgan (8-12), N.C. College (6-12), and Norfolk (20-22) marred what could have easily 
been an unbeaten season. Conference, State, and magazine all-star teams were full of selections from the 
Hawk squad naming Stukes, Duncan, Shell, Williams, Parsons, Kirk.sey, "Lasiter, Kennedy, Huff, and 
Thompson to their rosters. Graduating seniors Stukes and Cropper are being fondly sought by the pros.

The freshmen-dominated MSC basketball team com- 
pleted its season with surprising success. Under first year 
coach Joe Robinson, the Hawks compiled a respectable 
12-10 overall record and finished in fifth spot in the tough 
CIAA with a conference record of 10-6. A first round loss 
to A&T College, 8.5-78, eliminated the Hawks in the 

Levi Fontaine won the state scoring title with a 23.6 
points per game average while Jake Ford finished second 
in the nation in foul shooting. 

The consensus of opinion around the league is that a 
powerhouse is in the making.

Samuels hits iiinijiei against Norfolk State 


The Hawks captured the 1966 CIAA Baseball crown by amassing fifteen 
consecutive victories, ten in the conference. This fantastic season saw the 
heriocs of Stukes (.492), Hebron (.484), Brogden (.422), Gates (.393), Crop- 
per (.373), and Clark (.352) flash in headlines across the nation. 

NAIA statistics listed Stukes as the nation's leader in RBI's and fourth 
in hitting, with Hebron and Brogden placed sixth and twenty-first in hitting. 
The Hawks were tenth in hitting and second in team batting with a .377 
average. The NCAA had Stukes as national leader in RBI's and stolen bases 
with Hebron taking seventh place in steals. 

Hats off and continued success.

The 1966 Track and Field Team won the CIAA Championships held at 
Virginia State College by scoring a narrow victory over Morgan and A & T. 
Individual champions were Benedict Cayene (mile and two-mile) and Carver 
Bving (880) who accounted for 24 of the team's 40 points. Team strength was 
the answer as the others gained three second place finishes and five fourths. 

Cayenne — King — Grimes — Morris The Famed Two-Mile

Grimes — Skinner MSCs Track Mile-Relay 

The indoor season was especially successful as the Hawks competed 
against and were victorious over the nation's most celebrated board 
teams. The Trinidadians Cayenne, King, and Skinner with their cohorts 
added major awards to an already bulging trophy case.

To thee. Dear Alma Mater, 
We raise our grateful song. 
For through thy noble teachings 
Thou has made thy children strong; 
And thousand still shall praise thee, 
All earth shall hear their swell, 
And bind our hearts yet closer 
To thee we love so well. 

We love thy spacious campus, 
We love thy towering halls. 
And hallow'd are the lessons 
We've learned within thy walls. 
Stand thou forever glorious. 
Full-robed in Hving green; 
Shine thou in endless splendor 
Beneath thy trees serene. 

Maryland, Maryland, Home of Maroon and Gray; 
Maryland, Maryland, Thee we love always. 
All hail to thee, Fair Maryland, 
All glory be to thee! 
Grow thou in strength and honor 
Through all eternity!
